My thimbles

Collecting thimbles



I saw this thimble marked “December” which is the month that I was born. I decided to start a collection of thimbles that would remind me of places I’ve been and people that I have met. Each one tells a story and their number are increasing. Each one holds a memory to treasure.





This is my old plastic thimble which brings fond memories of my late Grandmother. She did a lot of sewing and passed on to me her love of it.

Memories from Nessabar, Bulgaria
source Wikipedia
Nessabar is a one of the most prominent tourist destinations and seaports on the Black Sea.
Nesebar has on several occasions found itself on the frontier of a threatened empire, and as such it is a town with a rich history. The ancient part of the town is situated on a peninsula (previously an island) connected to the mainland by a narrow man-made isthmus, and it bears evidence of occupation by a variety of different civilisations over the course of its existence. Its abundance of historic buildings prompted UNESCO to include Nesebar in its list of World Heritage Sites in 1983.
